Orpheus in the Underworld Tickets

London Opera
Orpheus in the Underworld is set to open at the ENO London Coliseum this autumn!
Director Emma Rice makes her ENO debut in a glitzy production that showcases her talents for theatrical spectacle and humour. Orpheus in the Underworld transports us to a hedonistic, party-filled Underworld. Eurydice is fooled into taking Pluto, ruler of the Underworld, as her lover after her new marriage to Orpheus is broken through tragedy. Orpheus must try to win his wife back, but to achieve the impossible he needs the help of the glamorous, conceited but rather bored gods… Offenbach’s riotous operetta features the popular ‘Can-can’. Ed Lyon and Mary Bevan are Orpheus and Eurydice with Alan Oke as John Styx and Sir Willard White as Jupiter. Joining them are ENO Harewood Artists Alex Otterburn and Idunnu Münch. Former ENO Music Director Sian Edwards (1993-95) returns to conduct. In association with Wise Children. Supported by George & Patti White and a syndicate of donors.

    Due to TfL's threats to close tube stations in the afternoon, and the fact that my partner is unable to walk more than a few hundred yards because of asthma, we were unable to attend the performance. Yet another example of incompetent politicians ruining the quality of life for he general public to pursue their own egos.
